The B e TER L e TTER

Volume 15, Issue 3
Director's Letter

Can you believe it? Summer is nearly over! Here at the BTER Foundation, we have spent our Summer months training members of the next generation of scientists and health care providers in biotherapy and biotechnology research. You will be able to read about them and their work in the coming months.

We have also been working on new guidance documents, which will soon be circulated among the biotherapy competency committees.

What have YOU been doing this Summer? Working hard? Relaxing? Learning new techniques? Well, soon it will be time to return to school . . . for all of us. So if you have anything that you want to share - research, articles you wrote or read, unusual treatment experiences, upcoming conference announcements, or just some thoughts about biotherapy - send us a message.

So as we and you prepare to go back to school, back to work, or just "back" to the next season, check out the biotherapy conference schedule below and let us know what else we can do for you and/or your patients to advance healthcare through biotherapy.

And if you are one of our Donors or Members, then a BIG shout-out goes to you, for without your generosity we could not provide our trainings, consultations, grants, or research. For all we do, thanks to you.

With best wishes, always,
